Use of alternative fuels (methane / hydrogen blends, syngas, LNG) in internal combustion engines.

Hybrid propulsion systems.

Optimization of dual fuel systems (pilot / main fuel).

1D / 0D simulation of internal combustion engines and alternative propulsion systems.

Luigi De Simio received the Master's degree "summa cum laude" in 2006 and the PhD in 2010, both in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Naples Federico II. He did postdoctoral work in CNR during 2010–2012, then he became a full-time researcher. His research mainly concerns studying alternative systems for powering and optimizing internal combustion engines, such as hydrogen and hybrid solutions. The activities are carried out with the engine installed on the test bench and numerical tools. His research has resulted in over 50 technical papers, some published in relevant international journals, book chapters or conference proceedings, and one international patent. He has completed different projects supported by both private and public entities, some of them as scientific coordinator. He serves as a reviewer of more than 10 international reputed journals and acts as an evaluator for projects financed by the Italian Ministry of Economic Development.
